Traffic tally

In 2nd Class A, we have been learning about data. We decided to carry out a survey to find out the amount of traffic on the road outside our school. We recorded our results using a tally chart. On a cold and frosty morning, we had great fun counting all the vehicles that passed our gate. We discovered that cars were the most popular type of vehicle!


3D Shape Walk

The children learned all about cubes, cuboidal, cylinders, cones, triangular prisms, spheres and pyramids in Maths. They were really good at spotting shapes around the classroom so we decided to take a walk around the grounds of the school. They found lots of shapes using their Maths eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ and were really surprised ๐Ÿ˜ฒ how many they spotted!!

Do they Roll, Slide or Stack?

In Maths, the children set out to find out if 3D shapes roll or slide. The children also experimented with stacking some of the shapes. They found that shapes that have flat faces stack easily รฉ.g. Cube, cuboid, cylinder and shapes with curved faces slide and roll รฉ.g. Cylinder, cones, spheres.

Our Teeth

We looked at the effect of sugar on our teeth. A boiled egg, to represent the enamel, was placed in a jar of Coke and left overnight. Next a toothbrush ๐Ÿชฅ was used to take the dark colour off the shell of the egg using a circular motion. The children were amazed at how dark the shell had become because of the sugar in the coke. They said that they will be more mindful of brushing their teeth after drinking sugary drinks ๐Ÿฅค.

Our Lungs

In Science, the children learned about keeping healthy how important it is to look after our lungs ๐Ÿซ.

Before doing our exercises we took our pulse rate. We noted that the rate got much higher and our breathing ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ was a lot faster.

Viking Projects

We learned all about Vikings and The Norse Gods in History during the month of November. The children presented their own individual projects based on various aspects of what they learned for example how they dressed, their weapons, longships, what their homes were like, how they came to settle in Ireland. They were so proud to stand up in front of the class and show their very impressive projects. 3rd class Superstars ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
